Mrs. Bogart! The Lucky Strike Program - Guests Bacall & Bogart January 5th, 1947 Jack Benny is, of course, the perfect gentleman.  He would never take lightly the sanctity of marriage.  Every man, however, has something deep in their psyche (call it vanity) that drives him to prove, if only to himself, that he can still play the Lothario should the need arise. With Lauren Bacall dropping by the Benny house to rehearse her part in an upcoming Jack Benny Show, Jack goes into action.  To...

Ed Wynn hosted a popular radio show for most of the 1930s, heard in North America on Tuesday nights, sponsored by Texaco gasoline. He was often seen wearing a fireman's helmet, as the "Texaco Fire Chief". During this time, Wynn was offered the part of The Wizard in MGM's adaptation of The Wizard of Oz, but he turned down the role. The part later went to Frank Morgan. Wynn founded his own short-lived radio network, the Amalgamated Broadcasting System, which lasted only five weeks in...

Curtain Time Curtain Time had two separate runs on radio. The fist run was sponsored by General Mills from 1937 to 1939 and the second aired from 1945 to 1950, sponsored by the Mars Candy Co. Interesting is that this romantic drama had a theater setting and announcements with the announcer shouting "tickets please". Many of the episodes were romantic stories where a boy meets his dream girl and what happens afterwards. Announcer for the series was Harry Halcomb who was later known...

The truth was one of the most powerful and prolific weapons used in WWII. By distorting, suppressing, or releasing it, morale fluctuated and battles were won and lost. Radio was a primary vehicle for the dissemination of information, both true and false, and played a significant role in WWII. Similarly, propaganda played its own major role in the war and in truth. Radio was used to propagate, but eventually employed the technique of propaganda through advertising.

These episodes sound clean, clear and full, thanks to the folks at http://bold-venture.co.uk/. The episode titles follow the work done by Digital Deli Too...

Groucho Marx - You Bet Your Life - Unedited These episodes are unedited. They run for around 60 minutes each. More was recorded than was needed and then the recordings were edited down to the half hour episodes that were broadcast a few weeks later. These were copied from reel to 90 or 60 min cassettes with auto-reverse which missed approx 0.4 of a sec as it turned the cassette. Where it was available, the missing piece from the broadcast version of the episode has been patched in. Sometimes it...

News from 1945. I usually share these via torrent but I don't think all these files are available on archive.org so here's a 1945 news file dump. Plus some V-Discs. Any typo or error is mine. ...if you like my uploads / Demonoid torrents please consider donating to a veteran's charity of your choice, thank you. Especially if you intend to make $ or otherwise profit from these files. :D

The show was patterned after the successful format used by the Lux Radio Theatre and Cecil B. DeMille. Preston Sturges, an up and coming director, was originally tapped to host the show, but was already committed elsewhere, and so suggested...
